The artist, Jeanne Flint, was born in sunny southern California, and raised in Mississippi. She has lived all over the Southeast (TN, FL, & GA), and is a lover of all things southern! She is currently living in Atlanta and creates her artwork in a cozy little studio situated in the beautiful Pine Lake area.
Jeanne came to art in her mid thirties and is a working artist that has followed the self-taught path. She has earned several scholarships to the Penland School of Crafts in NC and the Arrowmont School in TN. Having completed a jewelry apprenticeship early in her career, she diligently continues to add to her education through workshops and residencies.
Jeanne is a passionate arts advocate and you can find her teaching at Spruill Center for the Arts, where she offers a workshop titled “Selling Your Artwork at Festivals”. She has been showing and selling her artwork at juried national art festivals for many years and is dedicated to helping new artists get their work into the marketplace. She also teaches private jewelry making classes in her studio. Her main focus is one-of-a-kind and limited edition handmade art jewelry that includes found objects and photography.
In 2007 Jeanne was invited to join the American Craft Council SE Region (ACC/SE) as one of two representatives for the state of Georgia. She is a member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths and is a founding member of The Atlanta Critique Group.
The summer of 2010 was spent working on her first solo show at the Kentuck Museum in Tuscaloosa, AL. The show included her full range of works: mixed media wall pieces, lighting, and jewelry. This opportunity allowed her to expand her design vocabulary into new and exciting directions. In early 2013 she was invited by the High Museum of Art to create a wearable art piece for the closing event of the Frida & Diego exhibition: Passion, Politics & Painting.
She is represented by select galleries across the Southeastern United States. Jeanne welcomes the opportunity to produce custom pieces for individual clients, fusing their ideas with her design aesthetic to create original works of art.
